I'm using Firefox 112 on Windows 10. The toolbar contains icons for several extensions that I don't want to see. I click on the >> menu and then Customize Toolbar. That opens the Overflow Menu. It says, "Drag and drop items here to keep them within reach but out of your toolbar." I try to drag one of those extension icons onto the Overflow Menu. It won't go. The dragged icon picks up a circle with a line through it, indicating that this is not allowed or not working.

How can I use the Overflow Menu as advertised, to remove unwanted extension icons from the toolbar? Or is there a good workaround?

YouTube gets stuck on full screen ONLY when already in Mac's full screen window

I've only just recently had this issue: If I'm not already in full screen mode on my MacBook Air (Ventura 13.3.1), then I can enter and exist YouTube's full screen mode just fine. But if I'm already in full screen mode with the browser, then after going full screen with a YouTube video I can't exit. I can exit the full screen window, but then the video stays in full screen with no menu bar available etc. Instead I have to close Firefox and open again. See the attached image - I can change the size of the window but only the video screen appears. I can still use shortcuts (ctrl+tab) to navigate tabs etc.

After using gnome-tweaks to change my system fonts, Firefox has unexpectedly gone silent and no longer shows text in areas like the search bar, tabs, settings, bookmarks, and menus. Rendering websites works just fine, but Firefox itself won't show any text.

Hello everyone! I am new here, and this is my first question. So, please help me out and leave an answer for me. I would really appreciate it if you did so.

I was at the Firefox settings, and on the location permission settings, there was a web address requested my location and it started with "moz-extension://." I can easily guess that it is from the Mozilla Extension, but I was curious and wanted to know what it was and where it came from exactly. But I wasn’t allowed to copy and paste. Therefore, I am asking you guys. I have only been using the Firefox browser for a few days, so my knowledge about it is like a blank sheet of paper, and you guys are welcome to write anything and everything on it, and I will learn from it. So, please come and give me a helping hand. Thank you.

For your references I have attached the web address in question. I think I have to either allow or not allow permission rather quickly. Thank you.

Anyone know how to stop floating videos on Firefox anyone know how to stop floating videos on Firefox 112.0.1? This just started happening 2 days ago. Dailymail.com is the worst. No problem at all if I use Edge. I do have ghostery but Daily Mail gives popup saying to disable my ad blocker. Strange, because I also have ghostery on Edge. Again, no problem using Edge, just Firefox. Drives me up a wall.

Hi all, I cannot sync ma password to a different system. Firefox states that my account is "disconnected", I cannot change this status even with multiple tries to login. If I go to Sync I can chose to login "again". If I do so nothing changes. Even with muliple tries. Do you have any idea how I can debug this? BTW: There seemes to be some polices in place even if i'm in no organisation.

I don't know what happened. Firefox totally changed its look on me. It seemed it wiped out everything, as if I was a new user. I did a refresh not thinking what it was so I uninstalled it and reinstalled it. But this is NOT the FF I've always used. It looks like Chrome!

Luckily, I had written down my settings, preferences, add ons and even changes I made to about:config settings. But for some reason, FF is not accessing web sites. It just keeps spinning and nothing is happening (but this message board page is working for some reason).

What the heck happened?

When I copy paste stuff, and who knows when, I see a bunch of word suggestions at the top of the right click context menu, with an option to enter them into a dictionary, whatever and wherever that is. I see nothing at all in the settings corresponding to this, and just want to completely disable that BS: It's just garbage in the way of me doing my tasks. How do I disable this, and/or the entire spell checker and dictionary, etc. if necessary? I know how to spell. Don't need it. Thanks.

Google's websites works badly with Hardware Acceleration On (Google, Youtube, Gmail, Google Maps, ...)

Hi everyone, I am currently using Firefox "112.0.1 (64-bit)" on Windows 10 "10.0.19045 Build 19045]"

I have problems using almost all Google websites: most of the times they do not load at first attempt, and when they do they do not works properly. As example: Youtube does not load (or the cached version says that there is no internet connection), then after a few attempts it loads but all thumbnails on the home are gray.

On another browser (Edge) all websites works normally.

Using private window has the same problem, I have no extension and no plugin other than OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. and Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc.. I tried emptying cache and also reinstalling Firefox.

The only fix I found on the web is to disable hardware acceleration from settings. If I disable it and restart the browser, then all websites works normally. Actually I can't see this as fix but as a workaround, since I am using a notebook and I'd like to use my GPU for video decoding and save energy.

Maybe I am missing something? Is there something I can do? Thanks.

First came the Linux upgrade and with it the enforced new Firefox version. The new Firefox appeared "raw" with none of my previous settings. I am having trouble filling in the Firefox toolbar and recovering things like "most visited" sites listing and many others. There must be a common sense limit to the "happy developers'" ideas.

I'm enrolled in multiple classes at teachable.com and they both use my email, however, the classes are VERY different and I need two separate passwords. Firefox said NO. Is there a way to have two passwords using the same email address? I did try to log in when I signed up for the second course and it did not recognize my email address. The sign in process for the first site is slightly different and goes through the instructor's site, and then through teachable.com. My password for the first class is stored on Firefox under teachable...and I've emailed myself the password to the second class until I can resolve this. I thought there would be a comment field or something to differentiate the two courses. Please help. Many thanks!
